and the presidential race, editor of the daily beast and joy an read. jim, i haven't talked to you in a while. but i made a mistake, it was jane bern who benefited from the machine out there. tell us about what your experience is as a general reporter to what weather can do to elections. >> chris, i think as we said before it takes snow and i'm a native new yorker, and very weak response to a huge snowstorm. he lost in chicago in 1979. in the early '90s, a couple of washington bad storms, marion barry's stock plummeted. >> give me the reason for that. why do people have a big scorecard in their heads and hearts about weather and how politicians handle it? >> because if they are deemed to be responsible and affected and efficient, they are allotted. remember, herbert hoover won in 1928 because of what was deemed to be good performance as commerce secretary overseeing the response of the mississippi river flooding. the next year, huey long wins governor ship of mississippi. and in 1994 benefitting from a huge earthquake but the opposite is what we have seen in new york city, chicago, and washington wh

what it meant to you, but my brother jim filled me in today. the boardwalk is gone down there where grace kelly lived, all that historic stuff down there. just gone. all the way down to the south everything's flooded. it's amazing how much damage. but luckily, as i think was wonderful the way your former colleague, actually governor christie said today, not much loss of life. this is all about stuff that can be replaced. >> right, and he's right. it can be replaced if we understand that government has a role in our lives. government is important in our lives, and government has to be the key factor in helping that effort, that recovery effort. >> well, let's talk about that effort. let me go right now to david corn who is joining me. it seems to me that fema, working on that with the carter administration, there was a judgment made way back when in the '70s that government needs to be united. one focus by one man or woman, this guy, fugate's got to be good. you need like a baseball team, you need a manager, somebody to call the shots. >> and we see with more extreme weather happenin
